275 is 520 shipped plus the duty fees ,as far as how big of an alt ,that depends on the power your running .also $490 for a 250 amp

are your prices nogetiable? do you beat other peoples prices, id like to stay in the 400 range but im sure im gonna need atleast 275.. can 275 handle 5000 watts rms?

you can see what im running in my sig and im going to want to upgrade to something heavier atleast 2 12s or 15s at 1-2k a piece.

thanks

Duty fees are totally up to the customs guys. I think like 10% tho of what they are insured for. If I sent it with no insurance then no duty fees Also singer alts are very nice alts you would be pleased

No problem. Just don't get a eBay alt they are not what they claim and junk. They don't last

ive been quoted on a 240A alternator from mechman for 399 + 65 shipping and 2 year warranty.. seems to be the best deal ive found so far
